Dr. Lorena Jenks receives her first dose of the Moderna vaccine. Throughout this week, a team of Riverside employees has administered vaccines to long-term care staff, essential caregivers and ‘highest priority health care workers’ across the Rainy River District. Riverside’s long-term care residents who completed consents received their first dose of the Moderna vaccination in January have also begun receiving their second dose. Following their first COVID-19 vaccine dose Dr. Lorena Jenks remarked, “Everyone should get the COVID-19 vaccine; including the expectant mother,” and Dr. Marc Ruppenstein added, “Trust the science.” Riverside Healthcare is looking forward to additional vaccines being provided across our District to diminish the risk of the pandemic to our communities.
